The governor made the revelations on Wednesday, September 23, 2020, during the graduation of 6,252 students of the 18 skill acquisition centres in the state.

The students were trained in 15 different skills, including hairdressing and cosmetology, catering and hotel management, computer training, barbing, textile design, hat making and bead stringing, shoe making/leather works, fashion design and dress making.

Governor Sanwo-Olu advised youths and women to engage in vocational skills and become employers of labour rather than depending solely on government and private organisations for job opportunities.

He also urged the graduands to use the skills they had acquired to create platforms for themselves to be employers of labour.

The governor, while assuring the graduating students of support, urged them to do all they could to make learning a life-long venture, by constantly seeking ways to improve their skills and grow their businesses.

KanyiDaily recalls that Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde had also narrated his humble beginning which saw him selling bread at the gate of Adeoyo State Hospital in Ibadan, the state capital.
